Octarine is a glass compound of mana and silicon, artificially formed at high temperatures and high ECF. Octarine is valuable for many practical uses, one of which is for use in high-precision cuilometers. When activated with a scintillator such as cerium or various cerium compounds, octarine exhibits a unique effect that causes it to reflect light to different wavelengths depending on the ECF it is subjected to, from green to purple for high ECF and low ECF respectively. These wavelengths can be accurately and reliably measured, making it vital for cuilometers.
Another common use of octarine is to redirect the flow of flux or anomaly. By shaping octarine into a lens, it can be used to redirect or project flow and anomaly, allowing it to perform feats such as drawing flux from a battery, splitting flux to multiple conduits, and even making up complex devices that manipulate flow or projecting flux through the air.
Octarine can also be used in certain devices that allow cuilsight.
